Releasing Feb. 18:
THE LAWMAN'S HONOR, book four in the Whisper Falls series.
As assistant police
chief, Heath Monroe never expected he'd ever need rescuing. But that's
exactly what Cassie Blackwell does when she pulls him out of a car
wreckage. He's surprised at the beautiful widow's strength and joyous
spirit. But he's been burned before and is cautious to get involved.
Especially since his investigation into the town's drug operation might
implicate Cassie's late-husband! Yet the more time he spends with her, the
deeper he falls. Will he have to choose between duty and his growing
love—or is there a way he can have both?
Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and us wild partiers at the Goodnight casa are revving up for a good time of chip and dip, maybe a movie or two, and the ever popular midnight event (at our house anyway) that comes right after the ball drops in Time Square - The Chicken Dance!
Here's the dip I'll be serving to all the revelers:
Seven Layer Dip
(Yes, I "borrowed" this photo. I'll try to post mine tomorrow.)
1 16 oz can of refried beans (no-fat kind is okay.)
1 package taco seasoning
1 small, (about 12 oz) container of guacamole dip
1 16 oz carton of sour cream (low-fat is okay)
2 cups of cheese, cheddar or Mexican blend or Monterey Jack. I usually do cheddar (low-fat is okay)
1 small can sliced or chopped black olives
3-4 green onions – just the green part chopped up
1 cup chopped tomatoes
To put together:
9 x 13 dish (Can also do round if you have a pretty round container. A trifle bowl would look gorgeous!)
Mix beans with the taco seasoning and layer into bottom of dish. Then layer on the following:
I sometimes like to put a little shredded lettuce on top but that’s optional
You can eat it right away or chill and serve in an hour or so. Best if eaten the same day it’s made but still good the next day--just not as pretty.
Serve with tortilla chips or corn chips.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, my dear friends. Keep Calm and do the Chicken Dance!!
It's that time again. For those of you who are asking, here is my home made snow ice cream recipe. If you prefer vanilla, just leave out the cocoa and add a little extra vanilla!
Snow Ice Cream
(All ingredients are approximates)
1 lg. (3 quart bowl) of clean, dry snow
1 cup of sugar
2 ½ TBS. Cocoa
1 tsp. real vanilla extract
½ cup of Milnot or other evaporated milk – can also use cream, half and half, or plain old milk.
¼ cup of milk (approx.)
Mix cocoa and sugar together in a separate bowl, then sprinkle over the top of the snow and mix in lightly with a fork. Once the snow is chocolate colored (or if vanilla, once the sugar is distributed) , slowly add the vanilla and milks, mixing with fork after each addition. Continue until you reach a nice thick, sort of chunky, ice cream consistency. Put in freezer for a few minutes. Then eat and enjoy
